Hey Thomas, to access (and therefore read or modify) the value of an object property, you do this:

object.propertyName 

So if you want to change the age property of addy, you would do this:

addy.age = 4;

And it's as simple as that! You can also access an object property's value with bracket notation:

addy['age'] = 4;

I hope this helps!
